Re: Fantasy.

[ Edited ]

I love fantasy and I have lots of favorites, but some I would recommend that you didn't list (and have no vampires lol) are as follows...

The Lord of the Rings -  This classic series has so much more to offer than the movies.  There are characters you never knew about, differences in the plot, personalities and atmosphere.  I loved rereading this series many times and I highly recommend it

Fablehaven  -  This series was a fun adventure for me, it involves a preserve for magical beings and fairies



Magyk (Septimus Heap Series #1)  -  The Septimus Heap Series was another fun read that involves magical charms, spells, a dragon and some endearing characters.  I am currently reading Syren (Septimus Heap Series #5) so I can confirm the entire series is worth reading


The Bartimaeus Trilogy -  This is a great series involving demons and magic.  It was very interesting and well-written.  The main character is a teenage boy and I think guys would especially enjoy this collection.
